Reflections on Social Psychology while reading Hannah Arendt

Review Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Reflections on Social Psychology while reading Hannah Arendt Richard E. Morehouse, Ph.D. Emeritus Professor, Psychology, Viterbo University Two recent articles in the American Psychologist (Vol 74, no. 7, 2019) on the Stanford Prison Experiment induced me to re-read Hannah Arendt’s The Human Condition (1958), On Totalitarianism (1973). and Eichmann in Jerusalem (Arendt and Kroh, 1964). This re-reading and reflection deepened my understanding of the value and role of social psychology and Arendt’s deep understanding of human speech and action as it relates to the Human Sciences and understanding our role in the social and political world. The review includes an experiment by Arthur Asch on “Opinion and social pressure” published in 1955 and then looks at Stanley Milgram’s experiment on obedience published in 1963. The review of these articles provides a context for looking at Philip Zimbardo’s Sanford Prison Experiment (1973) and a critique of that experiment which led to my re-reading Hannah Arendt. This article continues an exploration of my efforts (Morehouse, 2012; Morehouse, 2015; Morehouse et al, 2019) at integrating some elements of psychology and philosophy with the goal of deepening understanding of contemporary issues.

Impact of Workplace Bullying Amongst First Responders- Systematic Review

Review Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews Impact of Workplace Bullying Amongst First Responders- Systematic Review Walker, JM. and Stones, A. North Central University The phenomenon of workplace bullying is pervasive and exposure to bullying leads to long-term, systemic and individual negative impacts to targets of bullying and the organizations in which they work. Multiple studies confirm that workplace bullying is associated with psychological trauma and serious negative long-term outcomes for targets including mental health disorders and in extreme cases suicide. Emergency service organizations by design are hierarchical in nature, creating power structures that can lead to increased potential for bullying. The literature shows that first responders who work in emergency service organizations report rates of workplace bullying at upwards of 60% (six times the National average). The prevalence of workplace bullying amongst first responders, given their already high stress jobs, along with the long term negative impacts to a targets health, mental health and wellbeing are significant and constitute a serious crisis within the emergency services community.

Research Article of International Journal of Psychological Research and Reviews The Role of the Psychologist in the Communication Context of Bad Notice in Pediatric Oncology Amanda Kamylle Cavalcanti Guedes1*; Ana Paula Amaral Pedrosa2, Cybelle Acciolly Cavalcanti3; Eliane Nóbrega Albuquerque4, Mônica de Oliveira Osório5, Maria Eduarda Pedrosa Bouçanova6 1,2,3,4,5 Psicólogas do Instituto de Medicina Integral Professor Fernando Figueira - IMIP ; 2,3,4,5 Tutoras da Faculdade Pernambucana de Saúde; 6 Acadêmica de Medicina da Universidade de Pernambuco-UPE Background: The news of a diagnosis such as cancer is quite scary for the patient and family members. This disease is surrounded by prejudices and representations, which hinders the provision of information in the context of health. In this context, there are confusions and expectations of health professionals and family members about the professional who should communicate a difficult diagnosis, and the psychologist is pointed out as a possible responsible for such a mission. Objective: to report the experience of the psychologist in the context of bad news in pediatric childhood oncology. Methodology: Experience report. Results and discussion: Before any reflection, it is important to understand that health professionals when they are going to communicate bad news should preserve the patient's autonomy, the right to know about his illness. Lay people and some health professionals try to direct this task to the psychologist, assuming that they have more professional resources in their academic training for this. The psychologist does not communicate diagnosis, or bad news, but supports the patient in these moments, acting in partnership with the multiprofessional team. The whole team participates, but the doctor is responsible for communicating. And he counts on the psychologist to support the child and his family, who in pediatric oncology resorts to the recreational resources to facilitate this process for the child. They can use toys, tell stories, ...
